The Show played at the Tivoli Theatre - A real fairground was created with the audience able to have rides the Carousel and get candy floss when they came into the theatre - there were 20 real trees, and a lake was at the edge of the playing space with two bridges from the auditorium to the stage was constructed.
When Billy when went to Heaven 200 mirrored stars decended from the ceiling above the whole auditorium.
